“A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.”
― Robert A. Heinlein
This is one of my favorite quotes of all time. As I was about to post it, I hoped to add a picture along to make it more visually appealing. How does one goes about doing that? Summarizing a paragraph by a picture. How do I chose the most relevant picture that describes this amazing quote? Is there any search engine which can do that? Sure, if its an “easy” write up, about one or two particular things, the task is pretty easy. But what about something like this? From a pool of images how do you select which one best represents a given text? (assuming the images don’t come with proper tags or too many pictures share the common tags)
Difficult. And currently a research problem.
